Where Do You Buy Yours?

Ask a Question

Just a quickie really.

When Amazon, eBay & Zoom don't have the DVD you want, which other sites do you use to buy brand new DVD's.

I don't know where else to look for them and would appreciate any reliable sites.

Thanks everyone

Thanks very much for that elise I have heard of Music Magpie but thought that they only had second hand DVD's. As for Zavvi, the name rings a bell so I will give them a look. I appreciate your reply. 🐞

I have always got mine the naughty way. πŸ˜‰ haven't had any piracy police knocking on my door yet lol.

If you're looking for physical discs though..

Asda, Tesco, etc. (most supermarkets have their own DVD section)

Hmv,

Zavvi, as elise said. Used to be known as virgin megastores back in the day.

Cex is good for second hand.

Thanks very much for the information. What I want to buy are older DVD's (eg. old poirot's with Peter Ustinov) which I don't think Tesco or other supermarkets will have. I think Zavvi is going to be the place - I hadn't realised that they were previously Virgin megastores!

tumblespots no problem. πŸ™‚

Ohh I see, I've just had a quick google and the ones on eBay are crazy prices. 😬

I can actually remember when virgin megastores changed over to zavvi, it's been well over 10 years.. damn, I feel old haha.

LittleLisaMarie Yes, the prices on there are scary, but I will get it somewhere, sooner rather than later hopefully. Zoom is actually cheaper than Zavvi at the mment but I shall keep my eyes open πŸ‘€ πŸ‘€ and see if anywhere comes up with a real bargain. I must be far older than you but I don't remember the virgin/zavvi changeover. Stay young. Image

In some cases you can also buy directly from the websites of the film distributors or studios, such as Arrow Video, BFI, Dogwoof and Disney. Some will offer special sales during the year or occasionally sell exclusive editions you can only get on their site.

Thanks for your interesting answer. I once approached a film company as I couldn't get a particular DVD of a film I had previously seen on TV. It took a lot to find who to contact and they deigned not to respond although everyone else along the way had been so helpful, so I was really disappointed.

I always think ebay is worth a look for anything i buy. I dont always buy from ebay but always have a look and compare prices. Just beware of copies and fakes 😬

How do you know which are the copies & fakes. What is it that tells them apart from the genuine article?

tumblespots I always read the sellers feedback and usually if the price is far too cheap then it’s probably a fake ! But that’s just my rule of thumb. I wouldn't know where to start trying to actually work out the fakes from the genuine. Some copies are so good it would take an expert to tell.
